As far as simple and ease of use go with the humminbird! I had a lowrance and switched to a bird and love it. Simple strait forward menus. Didn't even need the instructions to use it. If you can run a normal finder you can work one of these. Go to the GM or similar store and play with them a little. See what you like. I Found GM has the most units on display in my area. And buy the most expensive one you can comfortably afford. The bigger the screen the better.

For a lot of guys the combo unit is the way to go ....... but you said you only hit a few different lakes each year, and that you have a H2Oc handheld gps. In that case it might not be worth it for you to get a combo unit.

We've got a closeout deal going on for the x510c right now. That's really a nice unit, with a 5" color screen and 480x480 resolution, and easy to operate. And it's probably the best deal going right now because it's a closeout. Lowrance x510c

There's lots of other options too --- Lowrance, Eagle, Garmin and Humminbird all make good depthfinders. It really comes down to what you want to spend, and/or what features you want in terms of screen size, color or mono, screen resolution, etc. You can check them out at DepthFinders At Pro Fishing Supply.

If it turns out you're interested in a combo unit instead of a stand-alone depthfinder I can give you some suggestions in that area too. Hope that helps you out.

PerchJerker, looks like your x510c are all sold out.

Nope, they are available. Your browser may be caching an old version of the webpage, try refreshing with F5 and you should see them.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
